Just add food, and you’ll be all set!
Sunnylife Islabomba Picnic Set
This adorable little Sunnylife Islabomba Picnic Set is perfect for two—or you can buy more if you expect more people than that. The convenient, compact tote holds two melamine plates and matching utensils, which are far more durable than plastic options (and more environmentally friendly, too).
The tote has a wrist strap, making it super-easy to carry. Plus, the cute design is just fun! It can also double as a wristlet if you want to use it to carry other stuff.
Picnic At Ascot Entertaining Set
If you want to make your picnic a bit fancier, get the Picnic At Ascot Four-Bowl Entertaining Set to arrange a little charcuterie board. The small bowls are perfect for holding an array of dips. You can fill them before you head out, and then cover them with saran wrap until you get to your destination.
The small knives fit in the board, so you won’t lose them. The board provides enough room for your favorite cheeses, meats, and fruits. It’ll definitely put you in a luxurious mood and provide you with some awesome Instagram photos.

Enjoying your favorite wine alfresco is the perfect way to spend a beautiful afternoon or evening. Plush Picnic’s Insulated Wine Tote Bag holds two standard-size bottles of wine and will keep them chilled, if you prefer.
It comes with two small wine glasses that are perfect to use outside (they’re not glass, so you don’t have to worry about breaking them). There’s also a small cheese board for snacks, a knife, a stopper, and a corkscrew. It’s everything you need in a cute, conveniently sized bag.

Personalized Picnic Table and Wine Carrier
This portable table is pricey, but beautiful, and totally worth it if you often eat outside. Made of cherry wood, it’s a special piece. The company puts it together by hand after you order it, and it’s then engraved with your family name and a special date.
